Jennifer Hudson Thinks American Idol Should Leave The Air Before Getting Cancelled?!

Ruh roh!

Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey are NOT gonna be pleased when they hear about this SHADY SHADE!

Former American Idol contestant and Presidential serenader extraordinaire Jennifer Hudson apparently thinks the long running reality show should end before everyone loses interest!

Smash's newest star recently expressed:

"Everything has its time. I think it should just allow itself to go out on top… and gracefully."


We can't help but think J-Hud's comments are a slight jab at Mz. Mariah and Minajesty, seeing as they do keep getting into nasty, awkward, onscreen fights

But those tense times are oh SO fun to watch!

And hey, at least Jennifer gave the show that launched her career props when she stated:

"American Idol changed the face of television. So, not everyone can say that. And, it’s always been a phenomenon. I’m proud to have come from American Idol, so I just say, go out on top."

Unfortunately AI is currently experiencing super low ratings, but we're hoping it'll get a breath of life when new episodes premiere this week!

We love you AI! You can't leave us just yet!

    In a way she is right. This season is not good bc Nicki is too distracting. They need to really coach her or give her another role. Will probably be her only year on.

  2. 2

    Mariah and Nicki were a huge mistake….the negativity comes through. These uneducated women make the biz sad.

    She's right except for the timing thing,,, it's already TOO LATE. They've jumped the shark and then this hypergolic mix they're trying to make exciting ,, just a complete joke.

    I think American Idol should have left the air a long time ago. Yes it changed the way we watched TV, but now it is struggling to keep up with the shows that came after it like The Voice which offer more variety and have a higher entertainment value. Bringing in new judges, while entertaining for a while, cannot keep the show afloat. I'm sorry, but AI needs to go.

    Re: raypearson – Totally agree. She should have ended it about 2 seasons ago.

    They should end Idol immediately. A test pattern would appeal to a much larger audience.

    American Idol should have been cancelled years BEFORE Jennifer Hudson. She is so pompous. Just like her to not appreciate who gave her her start. She thinks her life started when she started not eating. We remember you before, Jennifer.

    I agree, the show has had its heyday, go out in glory, do not wait to be cancelled.]
    Personally I stopped watching when Simon and Paula left. Have not seen any of the other so called talent shows.

    Re: lacroix

    Hmmm…your statement makes me question YOUR level of intelligence. Yet I'm sure youre okay. MiMi however has all the education that money CAN NOT buy! School is not for everyone, as an institution yeah. But everything that is offered at those institutions, assuming that one gets an education from them, can be achieved elsewhere…
    JHud. don't want no drama. Her opinion is fine. She's fine.

    She is not the only one. Idol has jumped the shark, just unfortunate that Keith Urban is on this disaster.

    Re: lacroix – I agree. Both are obnoxious egomaniac b*tches. Im not watching the show at all, only watched the preview and yuck!, I couldnt stand it! both talk like morons, its so tiresome all that fakeness that goes around.
    Re: TeamMariah – Well, we all know she failed at school as she said it several times. So all she did was go from club to club giving her tape until she got a huge good luck strike with Mottola. Pity tho she didnt learn the one that counts the most from life: humility!.
